I’ve always been self-conscious about under eye shadows, dark circles & puffiness. And as someone who routinely likes to go sans makeup, this has caused many a dilemma. I’ve tried so many eye products, and found that Korres under eye cream works really well at hydrating and helping to reduce the appearance of dark circles. I also found that Onomie’s Bright Concealing Elixir is great at not only covering dark circles, but improving them overtime.

Trick? When applying eye cream, use a gentle patting motion (no pulling or rubbing), applying a light, pea-sized amount on the boney area around the eye to prevent puffiness.

Tip? Dehydration in general can cause skin around the eyes to look aged, enhancing dark circles. Remember to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated through-out the day.

Trick? For added hydration, try an under eye mask like these or these. I even use them on the plane to help rehydrate the sensitive skin around my eyes. Plus, they just feel so good!

Tip? Sleep with an eye mask like this silk one. An eye mask blocks-out light, soothing tired eyes. You can also try a specially-designed eye mask like this one with copper oxide, this one that can be chilled, or this one that offers relaxing aromatherapy. I always get a better night’s rest when I sleep with an eye mask on, which helps the over-all appearance of my eyes.

Trick? To cover under eye circles, start by adding a slightly darker concealer shade to the delicate, puffy under eye area, in a gentle patting motion, then adding a lighter shade to the crease and below to the top of the cheekbone.
